This week’s small business news roundup starts off with a reminder that we’re wrapping up National Start Your Business Month; LegalZoom’s Start-Your-Business Month Sweepstakes on Facebook ends on April 1, so be sure to have a look!

In the roundup, we’ll discuss the JOBS Act making its way to President Obama’s desk, what you should consider before hiring a small business consultant, ways to lower taxes before April 17, and Twitter’s foray into small business advertising. Let’s go!

First two other great roundups:

  • This Week in Small Business: Captain America Returns: The New York Times shares links to articles on Representative Paul Ryan’s budget proposal to cut personal income taxes, research about women-led businesses leading the way in job creation and growth, improving employee performance by banning smartphones, and much more.

And now the rest:

  • House Passes JOBS Act, Sending it to Obama’s Desk: Fox News reports: “In a rare display of bipartisanship, the House passed a bill Tuesday aimed at boosting jobs by easing an array of business regulations, the measure’s last step before it can be signed by the president.”
  • Twitter Goes Google With Launch of Self-Serve Small Business Ads: Robert Hof at Forbes reports on Twitter’s “self-service ad platform for small businesses . . . the service’s answer to Google’s AdWords, the automated ad system that catapulted the search engine into the most powerful company in online advertising.”

As always, you can keep up with the latest small business news by following @LegalZoom on Twitter and LegalZoom on Facebook.
